The “colossal wreck”

How large must the statue be
when

buildings are buried
like small ships

once floating
in a sea of sand,

flesh-turned
-clay figurines walking

under the dome
that is brushed with sand

and wind and grass
that touches

two amputated legs.

Inspired by “Ozymandias” by Percy Bysshe Shelley
